Say it with me again. You deserve to thrive. We don't have to be starving artists. But it can be hard to break out of that pattern without learning and adopting sound business practices.
Seriously. It's time to embrace business ownership. Your work/life boundaries and bank account balance will thank you.
But that wasn’t always my mindset.
When I first started my business, administrative tasks felt confusing and intimidating, and I didn’t realize how lonely entrepreneurship could be. It was difficult to confidently and unapologetically make decisions, and, after several years of relying on the internet for what turned out to be mostly terrible advice, I realized that all creative entrepreneurs could benefit from supportive, experienced, and successful mentors who provide practical and insightful advice.
…make confident decisions.
…lead a balanced life.
…create an unapologetic brand.
…embrace your value.
…crack a smile (or at least stop sweating bullets) when you open an Excel spreadsheet.
It might seem daunting, but together, we've got this...
I'm ready to transform!
-Incorporate bookkeeping practices that alleviate the dread you feel whenever it’s time to balance the books
-Utilize pricing formulas nix the guesswork and allow you to build a sustainable lifestyle

Pricing formulas? Excel spreadsheets? Your newsletter list? Sounds sexy, right? (Yes, I see you emphatically shaking your head no). But being empowered to take charge of these areas of your business leads not only to financial stability but also to reduced stress. Imagine being able to turn down a gig you’re not interested in without worrying about how it will affect your bottom line. Imagine outsourcing your not-so-favorite tasks. Imagine that you have the flexibility to take artistic risks.
Join me for customized 1:1 calls where we will tackle all the pain points in your business together. This package also includes ongoing support as you work toward your goals.
I want to learn video!
Which pieces of equipment to invest in and how to leverage your existing gear
Techniques that will allow you to master documentary-style videography quickly and confidently
Post-production and client workflows
That adding video to your current offerings isn’t as scary as it might seem!
Why add video? For starters, video is becoming increasingly important across multiple marketing platforms and campaigns, and is rapidly increasing in popularity with consumers. Clients benefit because they don't have to worry about consistency in style and quality, and they don't have to hire and coordinate with multiple vendors. And you are able to charge more per gig, drive down your client acquisition costs, and differentiate yourself in a saturated industry. As a self-taught, award-winning videographer, I can show you how simple, approachable, and practical videography can be.
